Breastfeeding/chestfeeding is the natural and healthy way for parents to feed their babies and provides the best source of nutrition in most cases to infants. Breast milk has health benefits for mom, too. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends exclusively breastfeeding for 6 months and breastfeeding up to a year for optimal growth and development.
